Senior School Curriculum
At Cedar College we recognise that the Senior School curriculum should not solely be focused on ATARs, but about providing a curriculum that leads to a career – whether that be tertiary education or another suitable pathway.
The Senior School, therefore, offers a careers programme which assists in identifying the future pathways of each student. A broad-based curriculum provides the opportunity for these young adults to pursue their aspirations and long-term goals while developing their God-given potential.
With the aid of the ‘Personal Learning Plan‘ in Year 10, Senior School students are encouraged to focus their future subject choices on areas of career interest and ability.
A growing range of subjects is offered in the Senior School including the core subjects English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, P.E. and Christian Living, as well as specialist subjects such as Music, Visual Arts, Food & Hospitality, Information Technology, Drama and Design & Technology studies. In Year 11 and 12, further options such as Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Information Processing & Publishing, Specialist Maths and Legal Studies are available for students to specialise further. For a full list of the current curriculum offered downloading our Senior School information brochure.
Students in the Senior School are also regularly challenged about the spiritual aspects of their lives through the Christian curriculum offered, as well as the continual overlap of God’s creation and design which is evident throughout all curriculum areas.
Subjects such as Christian Living and the recently introduced Vetamorphus course are designed to help students explore and learn more about God and Jesus Christ, and how this effects their lives and the world around them.
The Senior School seeks to fulfil the vision of Cedar College to provide a high-quality and caring educational environment for students from Reception through to Graduation.
